Course content

The MA Arts Practice will be of value to artists, arts or health managers, therapists, counsellors, community workers and teachers, plus others with an interest in the relationship between arts, health and wellbeing. A key element of this postgraduate art course is the wide range of projects undertaken by students with the NHS, arts organisations, social services, local authorities, charitable trusts, schools, colleges and commercial companies.

Our students create arts practice in a broad range of media, alongside the study of concepts and theories that inform arts, health and wellbeing practice and research. The course will enable you to develop your professional skills and experience within relevant critical and contextual frameworks. It encompasses a broad spectrum of creativity from participation and socially engaged practice to site-specific art works aimed at enhancing health and wellbeing.
